Juicing – my new way to eat…

So… after many years of debating whether to get a juicer or not, I have decided to get one. This idea was affirmed when recently a friend of mine went to the Gerson Institute in Mexico. He is healing from cancer and the Gerson therapy he is following is working. He is healing! He is looking great and his wife (who was his companion to the Gerson Institute) is also looking good from following part of his therapy.

I will not be juicing 13 juices per day like my friend has to, among the many other things he has to do daily, but I will be juicing daily for myself and my family. In doing so, I know we will all be getting all the available nutrients from the fruits and veggies we eat. By juicing, we will be able to get all the nutrients availalbe in the fruits and vegetables that cannot be chewed, but can be juiced.

Doing some research, I had narrowed it down to either a Breville Juice Fountain Elite or the Omega VRT350HD. I have decided to purchase the later as it is a slow juicer, processing at 80- RPM’s (as compared to 13,500 RPM’s) so it will not destroy any of the healthy enzymes or allow the juice to degrade after it is extracted. It also expels a drier pulp which ensures me I am getting the most from the products I will be juicing. This helps me to get the most from the money I spend on my produce as well.

I am fortunate not to be healing from any disease and would like to prevent any disease from happening, which is why I am buying a juicer. I will try to post recipes and updates so if you’re interested or have any ideas, reply or post as well.

Here’s to good health…


It’s fall and that means it is time for World Vegetarian Day and Vegetarian Awareness Month! Monday, October 1st is World Vegetarian Day. If you could go meatless for this one day, along with lots of other people, it would be very meaningful to the life of many animals. It may help you to create a new habit with this one day of awareness. It could end up saving (or prolonging) your life. It would be a better thing overall for the planet. You may find you really LIKE vegetables!

So to get started…. check out this link

Come to our FREE discussion group on Sunday, October 7th from 4:30 – 6:00 p.m. at The Bodhi Seed Yoga and Wellness Studio in downtown Mt. Clemens.

Take time for yourself

We all say we’re going to take time for ourselves and then we don’t. What stops us from doing this? Why do we always make time to help others but never have time for ourselves? What is so important that we neglect us more than anything else? We seem to be rushing to do this and that, but if we don’t sit and take time for ourselves, we will burn ourselves out.

We need to sit quietly in contemplation or meditation. We need to eat well, get sun and exercise. We need to socialize with friends and family. We need to just breathe and notice the moment we’re in. If we do not slow down and allow ourselves time to just be, we will make ourselves weak or worse yet, sick. Remember that a body that is not healthy is not at ease or is dis-eased. We have the ability to be strong, happy and healthy. All we need to do is take time for ourselves. Namaste

Update on Community Garden

So this is an updated photo of the garden as of July 15th. This is approximately 45 days after planting. We’ve had a few green peppers, a premature cucumber (I picked it too early), a few (like 5 ) green beans and one jalapeno. We have LOTS of tomatoes, but they are all still green. We have lots of stuff getting ready to pop out… but not quite ready. I tell you, it’s been lots of fun and I already know what I will omit and or add for next year!

So… we cleared out the ivy in a 6′ x 12′ (approximately) area. That was a lot of work. That ivy just roots everywhere and by the way, it chokes anything in it’s path. Next we turned and added new soil which was fun because it made me feel like I was deeply rooted to the earth.

In our little garden, I planted 4 different types of lettuce, kale, red peppers, green peppers, jalapeno peppers, summer squash, zucchini squash, broccoli, cucumbers, strawberries, tomatoes, grape tomatoes, basil, rosemary, parsley and thyme.

My friend Denise suggested I add the cement blocks in the center of the garden so not only will it allow me to walk through the plants to weed, but will also keep the weeds down! Thanks for that great idea Denise!

With all the plants in the ground, I hope all the sunshine, water and love the garden gets will be enough for all the plants to grow and produce beautiful fruit and vegetables!

I will keep you posted…
